In Baghdad, gunmen in speeding cars killed a police officer as he was leaving his house, while drive-by shooters killed a lawyer in the southern city of Al-Basrah.


A suicide car bomber rammed a police convoy in west Baghdad, killing one police commando and wounding three.


A dozen Iraqis were wounded in bombings and other attacks in the capital.


The U.S. military reported two deaths today.


Meanwhile, talks to form a new government remained stalled, as Iraqi politicians canceled their multiparty meetings on March 29.
